I just wanted to say that your staff were excellent. Especially the ones working on Friday evening when we arrived. Just wanted to pass this onto you – please could you relay this to your staff as I think they were great!
Nuala and myself enjoyed our stay immensely and found again that your staff were very friendly and professional. Please pass on our thanks.
I had to write to say thanks to you and your staff for making us feel so welcome at a recent wedding we attended. Every single one of your staff, those who served at the table, the bar, with canapés, coffee, were so friendly and polite and helpful it made the day so relaxed... I wanted you and your staff to know that the way they treated their guests was exceptional.
